Two Years after Starting Juicing

Well it's been over 2 years now since I started this blog. How times flies when we're having fun huh?
Well for started, I am still juicing. I try to juice daily when energy and funds allow. I have noticed what juicing does for me, is to give me energy. When I'm having one of those days when I feel like I just want to lay there all day, then I juice, in about twenty minutes I'm up and doing dishses or taking a shower.

It doens't get rid of my Lyme symptoms or pain. I was really hoping for this since I have seen others claim juicing has been a cure for them. I am not looking anymore for a cure, just to be functional, and juicing defintly aids in my energy level.

I do have a grandaugther now. So it's really important for me to be able to hold her and play with her.
So I am doing whatever I can to get back to functional. And by the way, my little grandaughter loves to share the juice with me.

Recently in the last month I have also started eating clean. I have been eating gluten and sugar free. At first I overwhelmed myself trying to do a anti histamine diet and a anti inflammtory diet at the same time. But before long, I realized that was making it too hard, there was almost nothing on the list of "ok foods to eat" on both diets. So I mostly am trying to keep a list of foods that I react to then elimating them. I react to things like vinegar, alchohol, avocados which shows that I have a histamine intolerance.

So basically that sums up when I have been doing. I will check back in soon and give any updates on how this is helping.

3 Weeks
I am about 3 weeks into starting gluten free and sugar free. I have lost 5 lbs. I have had a couple days where my back pain was less, but not sure if it's related to diet or not. I have also started massage and accupuncture but only got one session in on each, so again, not sure what is helping.I am still far from being out of the woods with pain but will continue on this diet and with these alternative treatments to try to help with pain. The pain I have is in my back, neck and legs. Sometimes it's sharp stabbing nerve pain and it's sometimes a throbbing aching kind of sore muscle pain. It changes and moves but my back pain if by far the worst.
